It's a shame that this keeps happening. Parents, please take the necessary measures to prevent this from happening to your child. I hope the little girl makes a full recovery.

Parents, please make sure you know that you need to watch little children (and pay for food, and not take them to bars at 2:00am, etc) BEFORE you have them. Okay?... What an amazing world we could have if people did this... Amazing....

Why no arrest in this case? I would think if a mother has a 2 year old, she would be required to have at least a screen on the window. Poor little thing falls out the window due to the mom not being smart enough to protect her. A 2 year old needs to be watched by a responsible person.

Irresponsible parents should live in ranch style homes or in caves.

It didn't look like there was a screen on the window? This is really a bad summer for kids in Denver this year. Are we thinning out the population?

Not only was it stupid to have an unlocked window in a childs room that is on the 3rd floor, she also must have had something the child could climb up on to even get to the window. Also, this appears to be an older building and windows are hard enough to open when they are new so the window was apparently open as well. Kinda makes you wonder if she really just fell out the window or had a little help.

It appears to me a little more investigating needs to be done.

Our daughter feel out a second story window when she was two and we were right there in the room. A screen was in the window-it pushed right out. That is how fast children can move. To the self righteous morons who made snide comments on this blog about the mother-you clearly show your own ignorance. I hope others do not judge you so harshly when something tragic happens to your own children.

In March 2004, Eric said he was retiring the songs Tears In Heaven and My Father’s Eyes from his concert repetoire.

While touring Japan in November / December 2003, he discovered he could no longer perform them. Both songs deal with the loss of his four-year-old son Conor, who died in 1991.

Eric said in an interview,“I didn’t feel the loss anymore, which is so much a part of performing those songs. I really have to connect with he feelings that were there when I wrote them. They’re kind of gone and I really don’t want them to come back, particularly. My life is different now.” He said he’d feel conflicted singing them at a time in his life when he’s happy.“They probably just need a rest and maybe I’ll introduce them for a much more detached point of view.”

This will never stop, we will always have these stupid parents who have no clue and should not have had kids in the first place. Sad but true.

Hey!, you're a stupid dumbass!

How many of these incidents must happen before parents get the freakin' hint?

It's like those stupid democrats who keep killing unborn babies because they haven't figured out what causes pregnancy.

"The Screen Manufacturers Association and the National Safety Council have the following safety tips for parents:
* When small children are present, close and lock windows. If you need ventilation, open windows that are out of reach of children.
* Do not place furniture near windows.
* Keep window treatments (blinds, cords, drapes, etc.) out of reach.
* Do not allow children to lean on screens and windows.
* Do not allow roughhousing near windows and patio doors.
* Watch your children as they play."
DUH!!!

It is tragic that these things happen. A friend of mine had her son fall from a window two stories up. The boy died. The window had a screen but that didn't hold the child. The owners were sued because the windows went all the way to the floor.
